Snap Not Working

Trying to install Quelea in Mx Linux with snap. Verified snap is installed but keep getting error cannot communicate with server. Also is 32 bit version for windows still available . Local church still using old XP system and would like to introduce them to Quelea. Thanks for a great free program.

Hmm, what’s the exact error message you’re getting there about the server? It sounds like it may be an error with snapcraft rather than Quelea (that doesn’t ring a bell in terms of error messages on the Quelea side.)

We haven’t provided a 32 bit version for windows for the last couple of releases as Quelea doesn’t tend to fare so well on older hardware. Windows XP in particular isn’t supported by Java 8, which is needed to run Quelea.

Apparently it is a glitch in snap. Tried other snaps they failed too with same error message. Switched to peppermint 10 . Snap worked ok

After searching found info indicating sysvinit is used instead of systemd on mx linux as default . Using start up options allows user to switch to systemd on start up . Then snaps work fine. However found even after installing snap program when restarting using default sysvinit snap installed program shows in program list but will not start. Restart with systemd and program works . so fault is in os not quelea or snap. Just FYI. Thanks

Thanks very much for the confirmation :slight_smile:
